Year 6 Boarding

Welcome to Year 6 Boarding

The Year 6 Boarding House is the perfect environment to support the process of transition between Chapter House and Kings Magna. Whilst the children are empowered to be more responsible and have more freedom, this is done within the constraints of a secure routine and with the continual support of experienced, caring staff. As a team the House Tutors encourage students to increase in independence and resilience, scaffolding their continuing growth. All of this is done in a caring family environment, where the children are encouraged to see each other as ‘boarding brothers and sisters’, who look out for each other, champion each other’s successes and support each other to overcome challenges. We are extremely proud of our little community within the greater community of the collegiate.
